About Caroline Denlar

Originally from Bethesda, MD outside of Washington, DC. Teacher and Executive Secretary at Blue Cross 1970-1994 in Lansing, MI. Permanently moved to Pentwater in 1997. Moved into Mack Place Condos in town (by the blue water tower) in 2005 and opened up the Lakehouse for rentals. Used to sail up and down Lake Michigan shoreline from 1972-1982.

Caroline Denlar purchased this house in 1982

Why Caroline Denlar chose Western Michigan

Bought this property in 1982 because it was on Pentwater Lake. Beautiful view in the fall! Easy acces to town.

What makes this house unique

In the winter, Monroe Road gets plowed all the time as it's near a turn-around area for the snowplows!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was great for our mini family vacation. We had 5 adults and 2 toddlers. Everyone had their own space and the rooms were very comfortable. There is plenty of space for everyone to relax. The 3 season porch overlooking the lake was a great place to hang out, catching the breeze from the lake and avoiding the bugs. Caroline has the house so well organized and filled with anything you could want, from games and coloring books for the kids to tons of beach toys, blankets, and towels. The kitchen was especially well organized, making it easy to find things when preparing meals. She really goes above and beyond to make sure the house is ready for you when you arrive. We got in late in the evening and she stopped by to turn on the outside lights and A/C prior to our arrival and left us a plate of homemade cookies (a big hit with my 2 year old). We had a great weekend exploring the Pentwater River and Lake on our kayaks and having the dock to pull up to when we were finished paddling was really nice. The house is a short, easy bike ride into town or a 5 minute drive, so we were able to explore there and get the things we needed easily. I highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a place in Pentwater or near the Silver Lake area, mostly because Caroline is a gracious hostess who really makes sure her guests are content throughout their stay. She is easy to reach if you need something and even sent me back my son's baby blanket that was accidentally left. We will definitely be back to Pentwater and wouldn't hesitate to rent this same house again. Thanks Caroline!

Lovely Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our three generation visit and was immaculate upon arrival. The location is really great, minutes to downtown and right on the lake. The dock on the property enabled us to launch nearby and then have the boat at the house available for cruises on Pentwater Lake and Lake Michigan. It is hard to think of things to add to previous reviews, but I must mention again how accommodating and helpful Caroline, the owner, was throughout our stay. She is one in a million, and I highly recommend staying at her house.

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I look at reviews every time I rent a place and I can say that the reviews listed are spot on, but I would like to add to them.

This was our 15th rental and I would rate it at the top of my list. The home was perfect for our group of 6, but could easily accommodate 8 or more. It was decorated nicely and spotless when we arrived. It had everything we needed and more. The beds and furniture were comfortable and the view beautiful. Wifi and air conditioning worked well. Two fridges were good to have. We spent our days travelling in the area and boating on the lake (best sunsets ever). Loved that the lake channeled out into lake Michigan and went for a boat ride to Silver Lake to see the dune buggies and jeeps on the sand dunes. Enjoyed the Farmer's market on Mon. and Thurs. and downtown Pentwater. Dinners were spent at home, ladies on the deck, boys barbecuing.

What made this stay especially nice was the owner. Caroline is friendly, accommodating and very helpful. She even sewed a tear in our boat cover! The cookies were a great treat.

In all my rentals, she was by far the most easiest and kindest person to work with. Definitely hope to visit again!

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We could not have enjoyed our stay more. The location is fantastic - close to terrific state parks in Pentwater and Ludington. We used our paddle boards almost every day exploring Pentwater Lake and the Pentwater River. The layout of the house is perfect - our two boys had their own spaces upstairs while we enjoyed the quiet of the downstairs. Caroline, the property's owner, is a wonderful person - genuine and kind. Her homemade cookies were a hit! Would we rent from her again? ABSOLUTELY!!!!

Denlar Lakefront Rental

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! The location is fantastic - close to several wonderful state parks both in Pentwater and Ludington. We loved being right on Pentwater Lake and used our paddle boards almost every day. The layout of the house is perfect for families with kids - everyone can have their own spaces or be all together. Caroline, the property's owner, had fresh baked cookies waiting for us when we arrived! She is genuine, kind and responsive. We would certainly rent her home again!

Perfect vacation spot!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of our favorite vacations. The owner, Caroline made sure everything was done. We even had homemade cookies waiting when we arrived. The home is spotless and comfortable. We saw a bald eagle and caught perch right off the dock! We will definitely be back again! !!

Owner's Response: Delighted you had such a good time with your family at the Lakehouse! Although we do have bald eagles nesting near-by, you don't always get such a close up view. Thanks for sharing the picture!
